How Is Child Support Determined?
Our firm can help you understand the method for reaching child support decisions. Child support is determined by looking at the gross income of both parents, and then using the combined income and the Child Support Obligation Table to obtain the Basic Child Support Obligation. This child support obligation will be used to pay for things like:
- Basic necessities of the child
- Educational expenses
- Extracurricular activity expenses
The amount determined by the guidelines may not always reflect the actual financial needs of the children. When necessary, G. Cleveland Payne III can argue for deviations from the calculated amount. Deviation may be necessary because of things like healthcare, daycare, educational costs of a child, special needs or unique expenses of a child.
